My return to posting on this blog has been a long time coming. I’ve been busy with the challenges of a new baby, finishing the manuscript for my second wilderness cookbook, outdooradventurecanada.com, and life in general. Another Fork in the Trail, is now in the publisher’s hands and I will see the layouts this week. The book should be on shelves by mid-May.

Amidst all of this I have been writing a monthly recipe column for Seattle Backpackers Magazine.

Here are the links to each month’s instalments…

December 2010: Quinoa – A Superfood for the Trail

January 2011: Winter Drinks to Warm You Up

February 2011: Romancing the Trail

March 2011: Soup’s On – Pizza Soup and Ribollita

I hope you enjoy the recipes and articles. I’ll be posting more recipes on the backpacking recipes blog soon.

Dennis Schmitt, known for his work on the Philmont Country Cookbook and for authoring the A Taste of Troop 928 Cookbook, generously granted permission for me to share some trail egg nog recipes with you. You can find links to both cookbooks on MacScouter’s Cooking and Cookbooks page.

The first is a family friendly version and is completely yummy. Dennis says that it comes from the Troop 928 cookbook but may have appeared in an earlier book.
